The Secretary for Education, FCTA, Senator Isa Maina, has charged members of the newly inaugurated boards of the FCT Secondary Education Board and the FCT Universal Basic Education Board to follow due process and extant rules and regulations in all their official assignments and financial transactions.
He said this in his post inaugural meeting with board members of both agencies at the secretariat yesterday.
He reiterated his commitment to improving the quality of primary and post primary education in the FCT.
He reminded them about the anti-corruption stance of the FCT minister and urged them not to allow personal friendships or political affiliations to influence their official decisions.
Senator Maina further charged the board members to work closely with the staff of both agencies and assured them that his doors were open to them at all times.
While responding, the Chairman of the Universal Basic Education Board, Dr, Kabir Matazu, thanked the secretary for receiving them warmly so soon after the inauguration and assured him that they would heed to all the advice he had given them.
